A legend of the star apple/ Sự tích cây vú sữa

Once upon a time, in a village, there was a mother and her son lived in a small cottage. The mother worked hard every day to take care of her son. However, the boy was very lazy and liked to play with nasty children. Therefore, the mother was worried about him and tried to talk to him but the boy did not want to listen to her. One day, when the mother told him off because of doing something wrong, he was sulky and left his home. He went out with his friends. They went to other villages. The mother was so sad and went to look for him but she could not find him out.

After a long time playing around, the boy felt tired. His friends left him to have fun with their new friends. He had nothing to eat. He had nowhere to sleep. Nobody cared for him. He missed his mother and decided to go home. He was sure his mother would not angry because he knew she always loved him a lot.

When the boy came back, the small house was very quiet. Nobody was home. Everything was still the same as he left. He called his mother but there was no answer. The boy started to worry. He went around the house, came into the garden to look for her. The mother still did not show up. She seemed to move to somewhere else.

Tired and hungry, the boy cried under a green tree in the garden. It was amazing, the tree was shaking lightly. Tiny flowers appeared as white clouds and then, became strange fruits. The fruits grew quickly. A ripe fruit fell into his arms. The boy picked it up and tried tasting it. The juice of the fruit came as a flow of milk. It had taste as the mother’s milk – fragrant and sweet.

The boy looked at the tree. Leaves were deep green. However, the other side of leaves looked like his mother eyes that cried so much for him. The boy cried loudly. The branches of the tree held him like his mother’s arms. The boy regretted very much but he could not change anything. He stayed at home, took care the garden.

Many people liked the strange fruits. They called them “vú sữa” (means milk-breast). They asked for seeds and planted in their gardens.

    🙂 thank you, Mit, for the story and photo- very nice, sad he couldn't find his mother, though…

  7. Yes, it's sad story. Although the mother could not take care of her son any more, her love still covered him.

  8. Nice story, Mit 🙂 Unfortunately sometimes it's late to change things, the consequences where our decisions lead us, but what we can to do is to never neglect our loved ones, to show our love, care, friendship. To appreciate the moments we spend together.
